Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet at the prearranged location on Slidell's West Pearl River, roughly 30 minutes prior to your chosen departure time.

Board your 14-passenger US Coast Guard–approved boat, which is covered to provide shade from the Louisiana sun, and embark on an adventure through one of the wildest swamps in the United States.

Throughout the cruise, you and your guide can expect the undivided attention of a professional wetland ecologist guide. As you go, make sure you let your guide know if you would like more time in certain areas of the swamp.

Notice moss hanging from the gnarled cypress trees and the smell of azaleas as you cruise through the murky waters. Be on the lookout for creatures such as alligators, raccoons, owls, otters, and frogs. You might also be one of the few to spot the Honey Island Swamp Monster.

Pass through a Cajun village where local fisherman are usually out and about. See them catching bluegill, sunfish, crawfish, largemouth bass, and other local fish.

When the time comes, make your way back up the swamp. Your cruise concludes back at the original launch point.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Dr. Wagner's Honey Island Swamp Tours
Upon arrival at the boat launch on the West Pearl River in Slidell, hop aboard the 14-passenger US Coast Guard–approved vessel, which provides plenty of shade from the Louisiana sun. You and your party will embark on an interactive 2-hour boat tour of Honey Island Swamp, which boasts nearly 70,000 acres (28,327 hectares) of protected wildlife preserve. This private tour for family and friends allows you to spend as much time in one area as your group desires. See the lovely sight of moss hanging from the gnarled cypress trees and take in the sweet smell of wild azaleas. Listen to your captain’s swamp tales of pirates, Bigfoot sightings and prehistoric creatures, and keep your eyes peeled for alligators, herons, egrets, deer, feral hogs, nutria, raccoons, otters, turtles and frogs along the riverbanks and lurking in the murky waters below. Also be on the lookout for bald eagles, owls, osprey and other water fowl soaring through the sky. Passing through a Cajun village where local fisherman reside, you may observe them catching bluegill, sunfish, largemouth bass, alligator gar, flathead catfish, freshwater drum and buffalo fish in addition to thousands of pounds of crawfish caught in these waters each season. During your journey back up river, learn more about the wetland ecology from live narration on board.
